Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Best Bass Amp for me ever!!!"
Sound: This amp has done for me things that my old Ampeg SVT-3pro can not. It has given me the tone in my head! Doesn't hurt that it is so lite! I recommend for anyone looking for a fairly neutral/uncoloring amp that has all the bottom you need and all the headroom you could want. Feature: The tube gain gives you a lot of tonal range, from pretty hifi to more of a vintage sound as you turn it up. The weight of course is a major plus! Has pre and post gain on the DI and ground lift. Ease of Use: For me it was real easy to use. I set it flat to start, made a couple of minor adjustments, and there my tone was! Quality: Seems very high quality, as most all Genz Benz products are. Value: Value is just outstanding. The price for what you get in product and support are bar none! Manufacturer Support: Here is where Genz Benz really shines!! Mr. Genzler answers emails himself very quickly and goes out of his way to make sure customers are happy. The warranties are transferable too, so if you buy an amplifier used and have a problem they will check the serial number to see if any warranty is still left and if so, fix it under warranty for you! That is just unheard of!! The Wow Factor: I can make good music without it, but it has such great tone and Genz Benz support is so great, I would rather not make music without it! Overall: I don't expect to look for another product ever, unless Genz Benz puts out something else that goes even beyond this one!

"Love this amp, highly recommend it"
Overall: This is a fantastic little amp. Quiet when running but big sound comes out of it. Easy to use. I would prefer a four band equalizer rather than the high, low, and mid with adjustable frequency, but that is just me. On the whole this amp is impressive. I also own a shuttle 3.0 and that is good for low volume situations but the Shuttle 9.0 can be used pretty much in any situation. Yet it is 4 lbs. Go figure. These amps are well reviewed pretty much anywhere you read including the main online bass forums. I should also point out that Genz-Benz is well known for outstanding customer service.
